When I turn my AC power on, the reset button pops out and the unit turns off. This happened yesterday, but then I hit the reset button and it was fine. Today, that is not working.

If it ran fine all day after you hit the unit, it sounds like its just the reset button that has the problem. What you can do, is turn off the power to the unit and pull this reset button out enough to get to the wiring. It should have the same wire going in one side and out the other as it is just a switch. Take a jumper wire and bypass the button. In other words just connect a piece of insulated wire and connect it from one terminal to the other, and this takes the button out of the system. This will be a temp. fix only, until you can get another at a appliance parts house. If its just wore out and there is nothing wrong with the unit, it will run. You say it was fine when you hit it that day? If it ran for the day, its just a faulty reset button, so just bypass it. Be sure to use black tape to tape any bare wires. Please don't forget to rate me as I know you will be kind to me. Please keep me posted on this also by my user name below. This will solve your problem until you get a new one.

When I turn my Garmin Nuvi 680 on, and the first screen appears about not driving while operating the Garmin, I have to hit "agree" button several times before it goes to main menu, and from that...


Hello,

Try performing a soft reset.
Disconnect the unit from any external power supply.
Depress the reset button behind the flip up antenna.
Reconnect the unit to the power supply and let it should work normally.

If the soft reset does not work, try performing a hard reset.
Caution: Performing a hard reset will erase all user information including favorites and bookmarks and restore the unit back to factory settings. Be sure to save any information before performing the hard reset.
With the unit off, press and hold the lower right hand corner of the screen while turning the power on until a pop-up appears. Press "Yes" to restore the unit back to factory settings.

Two things to try first before we go further with the diagnosis:
1. Try to power up the netbook with the external hard drive disconnected & see if it will work.
2. Try powering up the netbook from the AC adapter only with the battery removed.

MY Toshiba 65H93 doesn't come on.When I press the power button nothing happen.But when I unplug the it from the AC outlet and plug it back into the AC Outlet I here a clicking sound, but the set still...


Same here! Just happened yesterday after we had a power outage in the neighborhood and when the power to the neighborhood was restored my 65H93 would not power on with the remote or the power button on the front of the TV. I get the same clicking sound when unplugging and or pushing the reset on the front of the TV. I also see a red light come on inside for about a half a second after hitting reset or unplug/replugging it in. I'm thinking it has something to do with the standby circuit not coming on due to some problem with the power supply/circuit board?

Have you found out anything yet? I'll let you know if I find out anything also.
Thanks

Tv doesnt turn on at all


It seems that your unit has some sort of PSU fault, or a problem that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. The noise is what gives it away. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur.

You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done. It is that sound that gives it away, this is a typical switchmode Power Supply problem.

I have a HT-X40 Samsung home theater that worked fine until yesterday. It's been used very little to this point but now it won't turn on. I was watching a DVD yesterday morning then hit the stop button on...


I would say the DVD was stuck in the unit. Try pulling on the drawer whilst hitting eject. Also try pushing on it doing the same thing. Keep on trying to play it also, sometimes the control system and the mechanics get out of synch and need a little bit of help. But first thing - have you tried disconnecting the power completely (at the chord) and leaving it for about 10 minutes? Always a good first thing to try.

My zen won't turn on. only the blue light flashes when its plugged in. the screen doesnt turn on. what does this mean thanks


Well you can try this if you still got the zen, press the reste button, dont hold just press it then hold down the power button and it will start up but mine just kept on going black fter a while so i had to put it into recovery mode by doing the following.
Hold down play untill the end
Press the reset button
Hold down the power button
Makes sure you releas the play button last
after that do Reload Firmware i think
then it will delete the firmware make sure you have this downloaded on your computer
http://support.creative.com/downloads/download.aspx?nDownloadId=10889
its the newest firmware
when you downloaded this plug in your zen into the computer and it should turn on your zen and then say Firmware problem and if it doesnt just put it into recovery mode then plug it in.
Then make sure all application are turned off like Mozzila or the Internet Explorer, then just double click on the firmware and it should fix

Ac unit not powering / starting up


Did you try to plug a lamp into the same outlet as you have the A/C plugged into? It could be that you have no power at the outlet or the circuit breaker could be off or tripped. Something should run like the fan only position.

Sudden failure to power up


I've had this happen a number of times with my receiver. This trick from the Troubleshooting guide in the owner's manual usually does the trick: To reset If an unusual condition in the display window or malfunction occurs, reset the unit as follows. 1 Press the POWER button to turn off the power. 2 Press the POWER button while pressing the ENTER button. Everything stored in memory after purchase is canceled. If the power cannot be turned off in step 1 because of a malfunction, reset by disconnecting the AC cord and carry out step 2.
